The WAREMA emergency power supply kit for sun shading products offers users increased safety by raising any connected sun shading products (roller shutters, external venetian blinds, etc.) in the event of power failures or when centrally activated (by a building control system, central fire alarm or smoke detectors). The field of application for this product covers a broad spectrum ranging from private use to commercial construction. The emergency power supply kit consists of a UPS (uninterrupted power supply) and a special motor control unit. The kit can be used with controls that are already installed on-site or set up for purely manual operation via a switch. The special motor control unit is easily connected between the existing control/operation elements. However, a higher-level control (building control system, central fire alarm, etc.) can also be used and connected.
